     June was another slow month at the complete review, with summer traffic fairly lethargic.
     Quite a lot of turnover in the top fifteen this month -- with a surprising number of new reviews cracking the list.

For recent bestseller lists, go to previous lists.
For annual and older lists, see also the 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, , 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 , 2013, 2014 , and 2015 lists.
